Embrace: A Journey to Self-Discovery and Empowerment

Welcome to our vibrant space, dedicated to nurturing self-love and uncovering the very essence of who we are. Here, we converge to rediscover wholeness, to wholeheartedly embrace life’s abundance, and authentically express ourselves in every facet. This is a sanctuary where seizing every moment is paramount, where the call to create, love, and explore resonates deeply. Life’s brevity urges us to awaken to the present and meticulously craft our existence. Together, we amplify our strength, fostering a collective support system that empowers us to thrive. Through tools like our Habit Tracker, we forge accountability within our community, unlocking the benefits of shared growth and resilience. Our coaching transcends, amplifying empowerment beyond therapy, guided by the myriad covered benefits. Join us as we embolden each other to design lives rich in fulfillment and purpose.

Some Words of Praise

“I am honoured to support all here who choose to evolve and ‘grow forward’, together”

Dr. Stacy is a fellow light bearer and champion of the transformative power of pain, a process which ultimately invites each of us to drop the limiting patterns that restrict our growth and awaken to the essence of our being.

Dr. Shefali Tsabary

Best Selling Author: “A Radical Awakening”, “The Conscious Parent”

“What Dr. Stacy has built here is certainly a great idea”

Dr. Stacy is a great person: warm, intelligent, filled with mischievous sparkle. She has a knack for people, for being with people, for activating them, unblocking them, supporting them. For that, she has my support too.

Jeff Warren

Writer and meditation instructor. Author of “The Head Trip”

“I have been both personally and professionally inspired by Dr.Stacy’s teachings and gifts”

She has the unique ability to tune into the energy of individual and collective pain, and speak directly to the heart and soul of change. She knows how to lead people from the dark night of turmoil toward the guideposts of hope that are there for each of us on this mysterious and miraculous human journey.

Karen Day

Clinical Director and Founder of Daybreak Therapy and Training

Dr. Stacy Thomas is a captivating speaker with a clear and compelling message. I would welcome Stacy back to my stage anytime – it was an honour to have her support my audience and community.

Dr. Meghan Walker

ND (Inac) Founder, Clinician Business Labs

Dr. Stacy is an incredible speaker, facilitator and motivator. She is so gifted in helping people unlock their potential and move through what’s holding them back. It’s always such a joy collaborating with her and I believe she is one of the people on the planet to help anyone who wants to (re)design their life to include more of what matters most.

Lianne Kim

mamasandco.com

Dr. Stacy Thomas is our in-house psychology consultant, a guest mentor for the creative writers in our school. Every year, her presence clarifies, reassures, and inspires our writers so they can write what they want to read, even when (especially) their stories feel vulnerable and ask them to revisit traumatic events. Dr. Thomas has a way of uplifting and strengthening the spirit of a writer while helping them feel centered and strong. She understands that creative writing can be extraordinarily healing, and our writers benefit greatly from her words of wisdom and advice

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS?

The Design Your Life Community is not Therapy. It’s coaching. We do offer therapy at our clinic in Toronto to local residents and online to Ontario, Canada residents. Our methods are sourced from our experience at the clinic but the legal engagement of patient/therapist is not offered through this Community Coaching platform.

Yes, this is a starter event, that doesn’t require a membership at the Design Your Life Academy and Community. If however you purchase any additional services you they will include a membership access to our many courses, lessons, coaches, and tools such as our Habit Tracker and Journal.

No Psychotherapy is a Regulated Health Service that is conducted in the context of a therapeutic relationship, which means Psychotherapist and Client.

Purpose: Therapy is typically focused on addressing mental health issues and helping individuals to overcome psychological disorders, whereas coaching is more focused on personal or professional development, setting goals, and achieving outcomes.

Credentials: Therapists are required to hold specific credentials, such as a license or certification, to provide therapy services. Coaches, on the other hand, do not require specific credentials to practice.

While our coaches are licensed to provide psychotherapy, engaging them in a coaching capacity does not establish a therapist-client relationship. Nonetheless, we maintain the highest standards of care and approach to the subject matter in all our coaching services.

Refunds on Course are 30 Days, but Coaching products vary by the type of engagement. Please ask your coach for more information, email us at support@designyourlife.community or schedule a Discovery Call today.

THE DESIGN YOUR LIFE COMMUNITY
CODE OF CONDUCT

(aka our basic expectations for how to be in this place)

Welcome to The Design Your Life Community ! We are so happy that you

The phrase ‘sacred space’ might sound a bit formal and serious, like you need to mind your manners and take off your hat before you come in. Let me assure you that we are not that formal around here. But, we do think it is important to pause and recognize that this place is special and one we hope you will cherish. As such, it does require us to get centred in order to show up as our highest selves. Maintaining a loving atmosphere filled with compassion, empathy and respect is the secret sauce that is fundamentally important for all of us to learn, grow and heal in ways that serve us and others.
